Got a plan for National Day, Doha dwellers? Well, now you do. The powers-that-be have been busy organising guided tours of Darb Al Saai National Park in Al Sadd throughout Qatar National Day celebrations which, this year, are extending from December 8 right through to the 20th, it has been announced by Qatar Tourism Authority.
Board the Doha Bus, which is departing from key landmarks such as Souq Waqif, Aspire Park, Sheraton Park and The Pearl-Qatar, and join the team of tour guides at Darb Al Saai who will show you around various traditional activities and explain the significance of each in the context of Qatar’s history, traditions and heritage.
While you’re there, you’ll also experience the newly launched ‘Qatar Destination Brand’ at an interactive stand full of bespoke photography and film.
Meanwhile, back in Doha, you’ll notice various hotel establishments joining in the spirit by decorating their rooms and reception areas in maroon and white, and asking their staff to don national dress.
And don’t forget the fireworks over West Bay on December 18. Never forget the fireworks.
Buses depart from stops daily at 7am, 9am, 3pm, 5pm and 7.15pm.
